I Do Not Understand The Japanese

Jane read some articles recently about the demographic time-bombs faced by many countries, and notably Japan--the average age in Japan is, if I recall correctly, in the high-40's, and the average family has only 1.1 or 1.2 kids. (The required rate for replacement is a little over 2.) So indeed, they've got a problem.

Now Cronaca tells me that the Japanese think they've found a solution.

Hmmm. Nope, I still don't see it.
